Royal Wedding Bridesmaid Dresses
May 2nd, 2011
Other than the Duchess of Cambridge herself, Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen practically stole the show at the Royal Wedding. In addition to designing Kate Middleton’s wedding gown and after party dress, Burton also designed Pippa Middleton’s head bridesmaid gown, a lovely and form-fitting white satin dress with a cowl neck and cap sleeves. The dress featured the same lace trim and button detail as Kate’s wedding gown.

While dressing your bridesmaids in white is considered a no-no here in the U.S. for fear of upstaging the bride (which many say Pippa came close to doing!), it is actually an old tradition in the U.K. for the bridal party to dress similarly and to wear the same colors as the bride and groom.

Kate’s little bridesmaids wore adorable designs by Nikki Macfarlane, reminiscent of Princess Diana’s bridal party.

What do you think of white bridesmaid dresses? Was Pippa’s too sexy, or just perfect for a maid of honor at the Royal Wedding?
